So at my school we just got done with our sex unit in health class. The thing that I hate about it is that our curriculum is focused on abstinence. We didn't discuss contraception at all, and to sum up what they "taught us" for a month in three words would be something like "don't do it." Now I'm all for telling kids not to have sex because they won't get an STD or pregnant, but I am totally opposed our teacher just teaching about abstinence.
We didn't get taught about the benefits of not choking, but what to do if someone is choking.
We didn't just get taught how to avoid injury, but what to do if someone is injured.
Oh yeah. On the last day of health a "doctor" came in and told us that at best, condoms only protect against STD's 25% of the time. He also added that HIV could get through a condom, so condoms didn't help at all with HIV.
He was also giving statistics that only 10% of teens know how to put a condom on (as a pro-abstinence argument), yet he also said he is against teaching teens how to use condoms
And another thing is that my health teacher makes it sound like it is extremely easy to get an STD (Like 100% of the time), even though somewhere else I read that the chances of getting an STD from unprotected sex with someone who has an STD is something like 1 in 500.
